Hello monstersmile.gif Gurus,

Our website recently had a huge traffic spike from "Jarvis Universal Purchase Company" on August 2 -- nearly 500 visits which is 10x more than our average daily visits. These visits appear to have lasted less than 1 second. These actions appear to be very suspect.

Many other websites are experiencing similar traffic spikes from "Jarvis Universal Purchase Company":

I was wondering if any other monstersmile.gif merchants were experiencing these same spikes and if you have noticed any problems since then (e.g., DoS, SQL injection, etc.).

Is monstersmile.gif taking any action to investigate and potentially block these IPs?

Thanks for your input.
